Politcal Ears reported last week that Michigan’s legislature voted and passed a resolution calling for a Constitutional Convention. They are the 34th state to do so, and this should trigger the Convention of the States… Article 5 of the Constitution gives the several states the ability to convene a convention in which the Constitution may be amended, changed, or even scrapped.
From TRN News:
The most important political development in 200 years was triggered last week, when the state legislature of Michigan became the 34 th state to demand a “Constitutional Convention” in the United States. Under Article 5 of the US Constitution, if 2/3rds of the states call for such a convention, (meaning 34 states) it MUST take place. During such a convention, the ENTIRE Constitution can be changed; nothing is off-limits. This would even allow the States to dismantle the federal government without its consent, and repudiate the debt which that government has incurred! When it voted for the convention last week, Michigan became the 34 th state, thus meeting the requirement.’
You must understand the magnitude of what this means! An unprecedented effort has been made to amend the U.S. Constitution, through a little-known provision that gives states, rather than Congress the power to initiate changes. This is the most significant political development in the entire world in the last 200 years and very few know, or even realize what this means nor the ramifications, and MSM has not said a word!
What’s important to understand is what’s known as a “constitutional convention,” a scenario tucked into Article V of the U.S. Constitution. At its core, Article V provides two ways for amendments to be proposed. The first – which has been used for all 27 amendments to date, requires two-thirds of both the House and Senate to approve a resolution, before sending it to the states for ratification. The Founding Fathers, though, devised an alternative way which says if two-thirds of state legislatures demand a meeting, Congress “shall call a convention for proposing amendments.”
Michigan matters, because by some counts it was the 34th state to do so. That makes two-thirds.
If two-thirds of the states have indeed applied, then it is presumably in Congress’ hands to call the convention. But Article V is rather vague, and it’s ultimately unclear whether 34 states have technically applied. In the past, states like Oregon, Utah and Arizona have quietly voted to approve the provision in their legislature. But some of the 34 or so have rescinded their requests. Others have rescinded, and then re-applied.
This could be a new beginning for America; a new chance at vast prosperity, personal liberty and personal responsibility. The last time there was a successful amendment was more than four decades ago – the 26th Amendment which changed the voting age to 18. States ratified the 27th Amendment on congressional pay increases, but it took more than 200 years to do it. With the Michigan vote, this time we can right so many wrongs, and finally get the government out of our lives.

The amendment would require that congressional spending not exceed revenues.
